As an author and a teacher of creative writing for kids, teens and adults, I get to talk to a lot of young people about writing.

In this special video, I share my TOP 5 WRITING TIPS FOR KIDS – some of the advice and insights I give over and over, but which many of them haven’t heard before.

Filmed in my office, where I do all my writing, it’s a tiny masterclass for young writers aged 8-14.

I hope you find it useful!
